Jared Wangler Decommits From Penn State

Jared Wangler, a three-star linebacker out of Michigan, has decommitted from Penn State.

Yesterday, it was reported that Wangler, who committed to Penn State back in May and was the 9th member of the 2014 recruiting class, was traveling to Ann Arbor for an official visit. A few minutes after announcing the Penn State decommitment, Wangler signed on with Michigan.

This news isn’t exactly shocking to Penn Staters: Wangler received an offer from Michigan a few days back. His father, John, is one of the greatest QB’s in Michigan history, while his brother, Jack, will be walking onto the team this season as a wide receiver.

The decommitment leaves Troy Reeder as the only linebacker recruit in the class of 2014. Luckily for Penn State, only one linebacker on the current roster will graduate after this season: Glenn Carson. This also opens up another scholarship, which, one would assume, Bill O’Brien would keep open should Wangler recommit, no matter how unlikely.

If not, O’Brien could use that on another linebacker, although nothing’s guaranteed. The team has extended offers to four-star Florida LB Sharieff Rhaheed and three-star Maryland LB Melvin Keihn, per ESPN, but neither appear to be interested in playing in Happy Valley.
